Fortis Sikorsky Squadron Watch


by John Sealander

Soldiers, sailors, and aviators from around the world have learned they can depend on Fortis in critical situations. These durable, extremely accurate timing tools have become so popular in military circles that they have been selected by an elite group of aeronautical squadrons as their official squadron timepiece.

To meet the unique needs of the world’s fighting forces, Fortis established a special division that could equip these elite military squadrons with exclusive limited editions of select Fortis timepieces.

Fortis Aeromaster “Dawn” and “Dusk” Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

The Two Moods of the Fortis Aeromaster

Fortis WatchesFortis built its reputation on independently crafting a Flieger (pilot) watch. No country asked them to do it; they took on the challenge themselves. Their Flieger watch was so impressive that the Russian space program made it the official watch of the cosmonauts. To this day Fortis holds the honor of outfitting the Russian flight program with their watches.

Because Fortis is so strong in the Flieger category it often gets overlooked in its other collections and that’s a big mistake. The brand applies the same attention to details, function and technology to other categories. The Aviatis category is definitely one to consider, especially the Aeromaster models. While the Aviatis (flight watch) pillar was originally developed to assist pilots in their journeys, the new “Dawn” and “Dusk” models are so elegant that they have you covered in any situation: professional, casual and dressy.

Fortis 655.10.18 Aeromaster “Dawn” Fortis 655.18.98 Aeromaster “Dusk”

The “Dawn” and “Dusk” have all the features of the Aeromaster that put a smile on pilots’ faces, such as a robust Swiss made automatic movement and stainless steel case, lumed raised indices and numbers that give a cool and modern green afterglow, and lumed aviation-style hands that harken back to the first aviator watches. And, of course, the de rigueur orienting lumed triangle surrounded with two dots at 12 o’clock.

Although the “Dawn” and “Dusk” don’t qualify as dress watches, particularly because of the 42 mm stainless steel case and the larger silhouette, the sunray finished lush brown dial elevates the “Dawn” and “Dusk” comfortably into an office or sophisticated setting. Both the “Dawn” and “Dusk” come in two iterations: One is a chronograph with a tachymeter that has day and date windows at 9 and 3 o’clock respectively in a stainless case, while the other has a cleaner look without the chronograph and tachymeter but keeps the day/date function and comes in a PVD case.

So what’s the difference between the “Dawn” and Dusk”? Brands are constantly speaking about their watches creating mood and emotion. Fortis cleverly incorporated this poetic idea in a more concrete way. While the “Dawn” with its lighter hues of browns represents beginnings, the optimism and light of a new day, the “Dusk” is more brooding, dark and mysterious as night sets in.

With the “Dawn” and “Dusk” Fortis combined its reputation and expertise with tool watches and presented one that not only is extremely functional but a beautiful timepiece for everyday wear. It even has the ability to express your mood — even if it’s only you who know it.

Fortis B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT Watch Collection

Cockpit


by John Sealander  

Compared to other aviation timepieces, the innovative B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT is as different as night and day.

Fortis WatchesSince it prevents any ambiguity as to when events occurred, aviators and the military have always preferred dividing the time into 24-hour segments. This time keeping convention is popularly referred to as military time and some of today’s most influential military and aviation timepieces still utilize a 24-hour dial. The B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT augments and enhances the traditional 24-hour military style display by dividing the day and night into two hemispheres: one black and the other white.

The unique dial features a clearly lettered 60-minute scale as the primary time indicator, augmented by a smaller 24-hour scale on the chapter ring. The watch employs a traditional three-hand configuration with broad, sword style hands that are augmented by a rotating disc at the center of the dial to indicate GMT time.

The eye catching 42 mm timepiece is as different as day and night from most aviator watches and will appeal to anyone looking for a bold, visually compelling alternative to a conventional GMT watch. Complementing the dramatic dial is a PVD coated black stainless steel case that can be equipped with your choice of a 20 mm jet-black caoutchouc strap and push-button deployment clasp or calfskin strap and buckle clasp. This innovative, limited edition watch is powered by a precision Swiss-made ETA 2893 automatic GMT movement and is water resistant to an impressive 660 feet.

Anyone looking for an alternative to the small, hard-to-read GMT hands found on many multiple time zone watches will appreciate the stunning visual representation of 24-hour time provided by the B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT’s unique black and white dial. Not only is this a great way to tell the time at a glance, it is also a great way to instantly become the center of attention.

After a century of watchmaking innovation, Fortis continues to set the pace for other watch companies to follow. This is a company that refuses to rest on its laurels. Even though Fortis already makes some of the world’s most popular aviation watches and chronographs, they knew there would always be customers looking for something different. The Fortis B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT was expressly made for these discriminating customers. To put one of these innovative black and white beauties on your own wrist, contact an authorized Fortis dealer today and ask to see the Fortis B-42 Flieger Black Cockpit GMT Watch Collection.
